can someone please help me or give me advice on this i bought an iphone 4 from a girl that said she didnt need the phone anymore cause shes getting something new so she sold it. i go to get it cut on an they say its on a lost or stolen list or something an i said what can i do an they just said get her to call in an tell them its not stolen an i said okay (i contacted her im waiting on a response) i been looking online an i found out not only if the phone was lost or stolen it goes on the list people say if they dont pay they bill it goes on the list to. so i tried to call the number the phone had an it says not in service any more so im assuming it got cut off.
im looking for any advice on getting it off the lost or stolen list, flashing it to some other pre paid service or anything that will help me get this phone to work. im kinda blowed that i just bought this thinking i had a good deal.
welll thanks any help i would appreciate

That would be breaking the law in a way since it may have been stolen..... We can't help you with that.

thanks for the response...as i said i was waiting for them to contact me back about the phone an they made it clear its not stolen and its theres they just didnt pay the bill..an its cut off i been researching for hours now an they say after 60 or 90 days they take the esn of the black list if it was due to upaid bill.. do anyone know how true this statement is?

Oh ok. I can help you then . Why not just contact them directly and ask them what they can do? You can just tell them about the whole situation and they may take the charge off. If not, you could just pay the small fee or just get the phone on a whole new plan (That you pay for).

so i should go to Verizon an give them the meid # so they can look it up an just pay whatever they charge me to clear it off or it isnt that easy???

You can see if that'll work. I'd try that first. If it doesn't work you'll just have to deal with the charges and move on.

hey all, this is my first post and I need some help. I bought a Bad ESN iPhone 4S 16GB for Verizon a couple weeks ago. I did buy it .... Idk what is going on with your Vzw people but this shouldn't be hard.
